Shropshire UFOs were Chinese wedding lanterns

Or so the Shropshire Star says:
Staff from the Tern Hill Hall Hotel, which is located a short distance from the barracks, say it is likely the lights the soldiers saw were Chinese wedding lanterns, which had been let off at the hotel by wedding guests the same night.

Hotel manager Stuart Willatt said the lanterns were let off on June 7 at about 11pm, just minutes before the soldiers claimed to have seen the lights.
Mind you, the paper also reports that:
Dozens of residents from all over the county say they have seen mysterious lights moving across the sky in recent weeks.
Now read about the Sun front page that started this story off.
